Horseshoe Crab Conservation

Scientific Data demonstrates that the four Horseshoe Crab Species, Family Xiphuridae, have experienced a severe decline in numbers world-wide due to combined impacts of human predation, environmental degradation, and habitat loss. These Creatures are beneficial to human-kind, use of their unique blood to safeguard both the human replacement-blood supply, and pharmaceutical products essential to combating disease. Their eggs are a significant food supply for millions of migrating shore birds. They are a prehistoric creature.

Please go to the link below and sign the petition and ask #UNESCO to support the creation of a global sanctuary for these unique and venerable creatures by establishing the first designation of "World Heritage Species" for this invertebrate.
